Energy (Brazil): tipping point?

In a list of energy conversion processes, it is possible to consider gas and electricity as a source. Of course many other options might be out there.

Notably in furnaces and heat treatment comparing these two sources is very interesting!

Currently, considering the tariffs for piped gas from COMGAS and electricity from ENEL, targeting this example of the furnace, you get practically the same cost for the two sources!

And so,. what to choose?

It will be valuable to assess the market scenario of the two sources before making a decision. There are so many factors at stake!
